Ethics and Governance: Implementing the New Accountability (BLC #930.1)
1-3/4 Skill Builder Credits

In this era of corporate accountability, boards and management are expected—and in some cases required—to implement standards, programs, and procedures addressing such issues as ethical behavior, document retention, whistle-blower protection, fraud risk assessment, and financial transparency. This course explains the background of these issues and presents practical strategies to help electric cooperatives design and develop plans and programs that address new governance expectations.

  • Practical issues in creating, implementing, and enforcing a code of ethics at your cooperative
  • The board's oversight role in risk assessment, document retention, and whistle-blower protection
  • Key governance documents and other tools that can be used at your cooperative
